Frequently Asked Questions


What do I use avocado oil for?

Avocado oil is suitable for any cooking purpose, including baking, drizzling, dipping, roasting and frying. The high smoke-point of the oil means that it remains stable when placed under high heat (anywhere up to 250 degrees Celsius).

Where can I buy Westfalia Avocado Oil?

Westfalia Fruit’s Extra Virgin Avocado Oil can now be enjoyed by consumers in the United Kingdom, via the Ocado webshop.

Why would I make the switch to avocado oil?

Avocado oil is a great alternative to every-day cooking mediums as it is not only one of the healthiest oils to use, containing monounsaturated Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids (the GOOD fats!) but also has a smoke-point of 250 degrees Celsius. This means that the healthy benefits of the oil remain intact even when used in conjunction with high cooking temperatures.

What Westfalia avo oil variants are available?

In South Africa we currently have four variants of avocado oil available in retail outlets, namely Plain, Butter, Lemon and Garlic flavoured.

How do I store avocado oil?

Avocado oil should be stored away from direct sunlight and in cool-to-cold conditions but should not be refrigerated. Avocado oil can be stored for nine to 12 months.
